Mass Effect 3. Need we say more? Well, with a strong month ahead - including new entries in franchises like Street Fighter, Resident Evil and Ninja Gaiden - you may find yourself tempted by more than just Commander Shepard’s final fight to save the galaxy. A look at all 40 of March’s biggest game releases…
Every week GamesRadar receives more game trailers than the internet can be expected to hold, so in those seven days some people might tragically miss a few of these new videos. That's why we've collected them into one new video, remixed for your pleasure...
Our sixth annual celebration of all things amazing in gaming in 2011 continues - in fact, it's only just starting! Now that the feel-good Special Awards are
out of the way, we can start in on the real Platinum Chalices. Looking for the most
satisfying gore, the best sidekick or the game that surprised us the
most by not sucking in 2011? You've definitely come
to the right place...
Once again, we begin our yearly celebration of all things great in gaming, the Platinum Chalices. For
our sixth annual awards event, though, we’re doing things a little differently, posting the Chalices in three parts. So while you can still
expect to see our “normal” Chalices later in the day, as well as our Game of
the Year, we’re starting today off with our special and console-exclusive
awards. If a game deserved a nod for doing something unique this year, or stood out as
the best title to only be available on one platform, you’ll find it here.
Be sure to check back later this afternoon, as our Platinum Chalices continue!
It's not easy being a horse, especially a horse during these tough economic
times. Despite the huge federal deficit, massive layoffs, and two wars,
American humans will find the time and money to waste on useless gifts for
friends and family members this holiday season.
Like sheep lined up for the slaughter, they gather in droves to attend Black
Friday sales. There, the humans will procure unsightly sweaters for the nephew
they never see, dresses for the niece too fat to wear them, home appliances for
mother's domestic prison, gift cards for unappreciative sons, and books about
the civil war for the father who stopped loving them years ago. But I
December may offer the true
climax of the holiday season, but in terms of new game releases, it's very much
the calm after the storm. Most of the giant blockbusters of the season made
their way out between September and November, but the final month of 2011 isn't
barren by any means: big releases like Mario Kart 7 and Star Wars: The Old
Republic lead the pack, while system-specific versions of some notable recent
titles also find their way to store shelves. But if you read this over and
don't see anything on the horizon that works you into a tizzy, surely November's overstuffed
lineup holds a few leftover options to consider...
It's podcast time! Specifically TalkRadar UK time! A time when all gaming chatter is broken down into delicious, managable chunks for you to chew on and digest with ease. This week the men of GamesRadar UK discuss how to make the Nintendo 3DS better at getting unfit folk to waddle a bit further each day. There's an Appreciation Section dedicated to forgotten Capcom slash 'em up, Shadow of Rome, and some good news about the new SSX, mainly being it doesn't look awful anymore.
Every now and then, be it at work or play, we all feel like saying: “Screw it. I simply can’t be assed.” There’s no shame in it. After all, apathy is both big and clever. But what if some of our favourite game characters took this bone idle approach to their adventures…
December wasn't exactly rife with game releases. Sure, WoW: Cataclysm made a splash, but most big holiday games came out in November to give Christmas shoppers plenty of time to pick up preferred bundles of digital joy. We all know that many publishers get cold feet during the fall as they see the big boys come stomping in to lay claim to the coveted shopping season, which means a lot of premium titles start to trickle in as soon as the new year has passed. And so we get to January, which is looking up for those who've already blown through those Christmas games and are hungry for more...
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum! Wait, wrong story. Ho ho ho and a bottle of nog! It's a GamesRadar Christmas Carol!
TalkRadar and The GamesRadar Theatre Troupe invite you to put 'e's where they ought not to be and wrap yourself up in a warm Snuggie of Christmas cheer by way of the ghostly story of Ebenezer Scrooge. So put on your headphones, young listener, and sit back in your recliner by a crackling fire while we fill your chambers with the presence of three allegory-prone apparitions, the shriveled heart of a hardcore gamer, and his greatest fear of all - motion controls...
